with president obama and governors and other mayors. what was president obama's message to you? >> i heard you played part of the -- i guess a clip from his speech. president obama is singularly focused on making sure that states and cities -- governors and mayors on the call -- he wants to make sure that the department of homeland security and fema do everything they possibly can. i've never heard the president so serious so direct, so focused and literally kind of listening as a civilian though to the commander in chief. he's directing his forces to make sure that all of us get what we need and said basically at the end if you're not getting something, call me directly at the white house. i'm going to be up pretty late for the next couple of days. >> jennifer: there's nothing more reassuring than that. >> no. >> jennifer: than getting the phone number from the president in case you need something. >> who are you going to call? you know, i'm going to call the president of the united states. i think i'll get something d
obama and governor romney. someone who actually made the case for shutting down fema. in passing the responsibility on to the states and some people say maybe we're learning a lesson. how do you deal with something like that? >> absolutely every time you have an occasion that takes something from the federal government and sends it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> governor romney says it would be better to privatize fema. that's jarring and so was his reason. >> we're borrowing $1.6 trillion more than we're taking in. we cannot afford to do those things without jeopardizing the future for our kids. it is simply immoral. for us to rack up larger and larger debts and pass them on to our kids knowing full well that we'll be dead and gone before it occurs makes no sense at all. >> with eight days to go in this election, that is the choice in this election. do we want a president that believes government can be there when we need it most or someone who thinks it's immoral to sp
sandy we saw governor christy and president obama not just side by side but pracing each other for their common concern and shared focus and placing the needs of the people first and to ensure whatever needed to be done, would be done. for anybody who thought this natural disaster would be the kick in the pants to work together finally. something happened this afternoon that absolutely shatters that. a republican rally in the state of virginia featured governor mcdonnell. they were for senate candidate allen. he was a failure of a president whose reelection would be bad for virginia and bad for the united states. doesn't matter which side you look at if you take governor christy's view that president obama is the savior for new jersey or that he's an absolute failure. the fact is an act of god couldn't bring democrats and republicansing to in this country. that's why we need an independent in congress. >> congressman cicilline. >> thank you for hosting this debate. as this campaign comes to a close i want to thank the people of rhode island who shared their ideas with me in thi

minutes ago. president obama hanging on to a slim four-point lead in the commonwealth over governor romney. according to the latest "washington post" poll. joining me on the state of the race. jo anne reed, managing editor of the grio who was supposed to be with us in florida. >> i'm jealous. >> the latest poll, alex. "washington post" poll, president obama leads about 51% to governor romney's 47%. back in september, the president had a stronger lead, 52% to 44% in virginia. why do you think the governor has been able to close the gap in the commonwealth? >> i think just like you see nationally and a lot of other swing states, after a first debate performance in early october for governor romney. he managed to show people kind of a different face than they had seen in a lot of negative advertisements or depicted by president obama and a lot of his allies. you've seen him gain nationally in a lot of swing states just like in virginia. the question is, have enough momentum now to put him over the top and that's kind of the question that everyone is asking themselves nine days out from the el

including some along the garden state parkway. yesterday president obama joined governor chris christie on the ground in atlantic city for an up-close look at the destruction where the storm came ashore. they also saw the damage by air. boarding the president's marine one helicopter for aerial views of the hardest-ity communities. the governor thanked the president for pledging quick federal relief to the region. it's something president obama insists will not be delayed. >> what i can promise you is that the federal government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. we are not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and i've instituted a 15-minute rule essentially on my team, you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes. whether it's the mayors, the governors, county officials. if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and inte

here in ohio. we expect to see president obama and governor romney hit these battle grounds hard over the next ten days. ohio is perhaps the most important of them, especially for governor romney. because no republican candidate has won the white house, alex, without winning this state. last night as you mentioned, he and paul ryan held a huge rally in north canton last night, about 8,000 people according to the campaign braved some pretty brisk temperatures. the governor is asking for their help in this state because the latest cnn poll just out a few days ago shows that the president is up four points. 50-46. now that lead is about half of what it was a few weeks ago. so the governor has chipped away at that lead but still has a ways to go. they want to get their graund game out, get people out to early vote and then get people out to the polls on november 6th. governor romney is going to campaign with florida senator marco rubio and paul ryan is going to hit this state hard over the next 48 hours. they really expect to win here. rob portman, who was governor romney's debate partner

forward. that's not going to be well for obama, but we'll see. dennis: governor christie, singing obama's praises and the liberal press loving that. that impact anything? >> i don't know if it has impact. it's a natural outgrowth. chuck schumer asking new york to be paid back 90% damage from the federal government. governors and mayors try to get maximum dollar from the federal government during natural catastrophes. i'm not sure going to effect the presidential race at this point, and i don't think necessarily the it's the only game in town. there's a slow drift of news about ben gay disci -- ben gay disci -- ben gay city. the name of the game comes down to ohio; right? dennis: markets open for business, but two days in the dark, whand? cheryl: trading firm liquidness, ceo joining melissa and ashley next as "markets now" which is now trading continues. he loves. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the marke he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fee
the while they forget their president barack obama cut fema. megyn: the folks who are opposing governor romney in this race are talking about he wants to abolish fema. he wants to get rid of fema because of an answer he gave during a debate to john king of cnn talking about how we need to make cuts in certain programs and talked about our debt. that's my own characterization of it. he's right. fema is kinds of a catchall. a lot of times it's under turned. knowing they will have to get more money to in fact fund it. when they do that all these happy members of congress are glad to put every pork barrel project in the world into it they couldn't get vote on in a regular lay in washington, d.c. but fema isn't going to go anywhere. and mitt romney is right. there are times when you can look to the states to do a better job than washington, d.c. and that's what we need to look at. that's what he wants to do as president. he didn't say he was going to get rid of fema. he said he will look at like everything else. but he's not playing politics. conservatives who are supportive of the governmen
is finally set to open using backup generators this morning. later on today, president obama will meet with governor chris christie to tour parts of new jersey. >>> airports in the new york area are beginning to resume some nights but look at this. this is la guardia airport under water. a bird's eye view there you can see shows flooded runways. new york, of course, the main transfer hub for international flights and millions of passengers around the world are stranded. >>> sandy may have come and gone now but her impact will be felt for months. >> new fears of more flooding as another high tide is expected along the potomac river in just a few hours. melanie alnwick is live there now with an update on these flooding concerns. >> good morning. a coastal flood warning remains in effect until 2:00 p.m. friday so that means even more flooding could come, not just here to old town alexandria but to areas all along the tidal area. so we are talking about washington, d.c., georgetown waterfront and even prince george's county as well. so here in alexandria, this is something they've been thr

it portrayed governor romney, showing president obama in one light and governor romney in another. tell us about the fallout from this. guest: had i been the photo editor of the newspaper, i would not have picked those photographs. i felt those photographs gave a message. if you look at the front page, you got a feeling the newspaper was trying to present a positive image of romney and of a negative image of obama. everybody i've spoken to has given me the same kind of feedback. it was a mistake for the newspaper to do that, a poor choice of gore made that decision. host: how much of the candidates visiting your state,, are the candidates visiting your state? how much attention is iowa getting on the ground? guest: all the attention we can handle. both candidates are here routinely several times a week, both of them, along with surrogates and along with their. running their there's not a single day that goes by in the state where we don't have a visit from a candidate, running mate, or significance forget. both candidates have made iowa a focal point. there are about nine states that are s
, governor romney, or their surrogates in your state? guest: president obama has been here eight times this year, governor romney has been here 6. paul ryan may be eligible to vote, he's been here that much. joe biden has been here once. we have had a lot of its from michelle obama. we have seen plenty of action this cycle. host: bill clinton could be coming to your state. he is scheduled to campaign for the president today in colorado. he was supposed to be in colorado springs tuesday but cancelled due to the storm. guest: pending the outcome of the storm on the east coast, we will see both candidates later in the week. governor romney was here last week and held a rally at red rock and thousands were turned away. the following day, he held a -- president obama held a rally in denver and drew a crowd estimated at 16,000. the governor this week has reserved an amphitheater in the southern suburbs of has a capacity of 18,000 people. there were looking at going to boulder to hold a rally there. they're certainly trying to turn out a lot of voters with momentum. >> one week to go and foll
governor romney did it. he has a record of working on a bipartisan basis whereas barack obama has actually failed on being bipartisan. and governor romney again will be bipartisan on things like offshore drilling which are other good, high-paying jobs in virginia that mark warner supports. you will be able to have a president romney work with mark warner and george allen on a bipartisan basis to open up offshore drilling which he said he would do saidday one. those are not minimum-wage jobs. they are health care. you can get pensions. it could bring millions, even billions and against the capital of east coast for energy which governor mcdonnell wants to do. we want to partner with the legislature -- it supports it on a bipartisan basis as well as congressional leadership. but unfortunately barack obama and the democrat leadership and his party in virginia opposes the good common sense of sure drilling policies which mark warner, george alley -- george allen support. guest: why didn't you run for reelection in massachusetts? they can run for reelection. why is he losing by double digits, i
months they visited 50 times. president obama 15, governor romney 12. the catholic veep candidates truck there as well 20 times. that's a nod to the state's catholic swing vote. cash flows freely here as well. ad spending is the second highest in the country. $22 per person. florida and ohio with up to five times more electoral votes have as little as half that amount per person. now, the more they've invested the tighter the race has gotten. last month the real clear average had them virtually tied. now the president is up by two points and trending flat or declining wild romney is on a steady rise. if the polls aren't so clear there, early voting offers a bit of a hint. as of monday it equals almost 20% of estimated turnout and favors democrats two to one. but some watchers say it's election day swing votes that make the difference. and it's swing voters in these 21 swing counties that hold the keys. sprinkled across the state, iowa has 20% of all swing counties nation-wide. the state has long been pivotal. richard nixon traveled there as vice president when running for the white house
the elections. nine days until voters go to the polls. >> we have seen some of the effect. both governor romney and president obama have canceled effe events in virginia. one big impact right now. it's going to expect their effort to get out the vote. early voting didn't have much effect on early voting in florida yesterday. it could complicate it in virginia and ohio. then finally, is this storm as bad as it seems to be right now, it could block out the closing arguments of these candidates. >> i wonder if you're the president how do you manage campaigning, because his job is truly on the line here with governing and imagine perhaps a large disaster. >> he's returning to the white house tomorrow afternoon, as i said, cancelling some events. the biggest problem for the president right now, if he makes any mishandling of this storm could affect the final days of this race. >> in nonweather news, a bit of surprise, the des moines register, the largest newspaper endorsed romney. >> iowa is a key state. it's part of barack obama's mid western fire wall. >> he needs to win iowa, wisconsin and ohio.
to the polls. how do any affect this? >> we've seen both governor romney and president obama have to cancel events, obama in virginia, and adjust their schedules. president obama canceling an event in colorado. that's one big impact right now and also it will affect their efforts to get out the vote and early voting didn't seem to have much effect on the early voting in florida yesterday but could complicate efforts to get out the vote in virginia and ohio, two other key states that will be impacted by the storm and finally if this storm is as bad as it seems to be right now, it could block out the closing arguments of these candidates in the last nine days. >> in some ways this is the real october surprise. i wonder if you're the president, how do you manage campaigning because the job is truly on the line with governing and managing perhaps a large disaster response. >> you show you're in touch. that's why the president put out photos of him talking to the director of the federal emergency management agency and he also is returning to the white house tomorrow afternoon, as i said, cancel

and down about stuff. we pride on ocean grove. >> governor chris christie and president obama will spend the day touring damaged new jersey towns. >>> sandy is now being blamed for damaging the food supply in haiti. the country has been struggling for years with drought, now fields have been saturated and crops are destroyed. the government says it's distributing food and water to any affects residents, but supplies are very low. >>> the country's largest halloween celebration will take a year off because of sandy. new york city's greenwich village halloween parade cancelled for the first time in the parade's 39-year history. people asked to volunteer at local outreach centers to help storm victims instead. >> time for weather and traffic on the ones. tom said there is still rain lipgerring in our area. >>> just a few sprinkles in our area. you may need an umbrella. many getting back to work and school. no sprinkles right there on the mall. just up here in northwest washington, we have a view. 43 reagan national. wind out of the south around 10. occasional gusts at 15. as we look at stor
to that the backdrop, of course, a presidential election just eight days away. president obama, governor romney forced to cancel some events and reschedule others. we just got word that the president has cancelled a planned event in florida this morning in order to get back to washington. they were worried air force one may not be able to land in deteriorating conditions. >> we've got correspondents all up and down the east coast. let's start with al roker in point pleasant beach, new jersey. al, what can you tell us? >> reporter: well, i can tell you, matt, that these dunes that i'm on were built for a storm in 1992 that had washed into the town and caused massive damage. these dunes are in damage of breaching. high tide is starting to come up over the dunes. this is a massive storm, as you mentioned, and it will get more intense. it's now over the gulf stream that's running parallel to the east coast. that is extremely warm water. we've seen pressure drops. the pressure is now down to 941 millibars, and it may strengthen even more. we expect more strengthening. take a look at a path of, first of all
